Midtown Social
Midtown Social
Midtown's mission to spread positive change through the means of culture, art, and music is at the heart of its agenda. By tapping into the past and looking towards the future, Midtown strives to create a present that will support positive transformation through its music and community. Motivated by the struggle and oppression that humanity faces daily and inspired by the love, nurture and hope of the midtown society, Midtown Social strives to fuel the revolution of free, open and creative thought to change the world.

Midtown Social is redefining the California Soul sound with a no-fail good-time sweet spot you crave. Blending soul, funk and rock, this 9 piece ensemble draws on the arrangements by such family bands as Tower of Power, Sly and the Family Stone and Chicago, while provided provocative vocals influenced by Bill Withers, Tina Turner and En Vogue. With an eclectic community of musicians and styles, Midtown Social never fails to bring a high energy, live music dance party wherever it goes.
Kuckaw
Bay Area funk powerhouse, Kuckaw!, assembled with one goal in mind: to simultaneously stimulate brain and booty alike. Influenced by artists such as Herbie Hancock, Orgone, Snarky Puppy, and Jamiroquai, Kuckaw!'s sound melds the driving, heavy rhythms of 70′s funk with the hypnotic, interlocking essence of Afrobeat, a touch of disco, and the wild abandon of a Zappa-esk musical odyssey. Hailing from the great city of Oakland, California, this heavy hitting ensemble features members and collaborators of Albino! – Heavy Heavy Afrobeat, Dynamic, Victor Little's Big Hit [of Booker T], Jazz Mafia, Ernest Ranglin, and Soji & The Afrobeat Band [of Fela Kuti], among many others. Keep an ear out for this burgeoning ensemble, bringing the funk to a location near you!
